Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
Fanfare (7-8/98, pp.110-11) - "...The highlights of this set are the Allegro, which is a charming takeoff on Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto, and the several very beautiful elegies....the other works are little more than encore pieces, but even they must have astounded listeners in their day...and they have a certain quaint charm now..."
